Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course and Card Shark are the games of the month for June 2022


The month of June 2022 will not be remembered only for the many media and presentation events dedicated to the world of video games, including Summer Game Fest, PlayStation State of Play, Xbox & Bethesda Showcase and Nintendo Direct, but also for a rich lineup of games released. over the course of this 30 days, able to truly cover a wide range of genres and videogame experiences and, in general, to put together a truly very active period in terms of the "played" game, and not just "spoken". In all this richness, Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course and Card Shark finally emerged as games of the month of June 2022, the first from the readers and also from the editorial staff, which however awarded as a tie also Card Shark, which has come to an end. of the vote with the same amount of points.

Two beautiful games that once again come from the indie field, demonstrating how this always represents an important driving force of the videogame industry.

Recall that the month opened with Sony's State of Play from which interesting announcements emerged regarding third party products, in particular by Square Enix and Capcom, then the Summer Game Fest and the Xbox & Bethesda Showcase have really flooded the gaming scene, most of which are expected to arrive over the next 12 months and finally the month ended with a Nintendo Direct Mini loaded with new titles, also largely third party, d only there were really news for everyone during this really eventful June 2022. So let's go and see, in terms of games properly launched on the market, which are the ones that have hit the most.

The editorial team's choice

Card Shark, an image of the game As rarely happens, the editorial team's vote returned an equal merit in first place, with Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course and Card Shark to share the first position. The former is not exactly a new game proper, but the Cuphead expansion has undergone such a long and deep processing that it seems to be, as well as being a really substantial and qualitatively excellent addition, as can be expected from Studio MDHR. The other is instead a truly original indie, which stages with a rather new concept: in 18th century France, we find ourselves interpreting a skilled card player who, by winning and cheating, finds himself climbing the ranks of society up to reach the tables of the aristocracy, at the same time trying to unveil a dangerous political plot.

Second position for a real classic, which could not be missing from the preferences of a group of boomers like the editorial staff of Multiplayer. it, aka Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge.

On the third step of this podium occupied by four titles we find Neon White, another production of the unstoppable Annapurna: in this case it is a particular hybrid game developed by Angel Matrix, which mixes elements of action, shooter, 3D platform and puzzle in a mixture truly particular and irresistible.

The choice of readers

The winner, albeit by only one percentage point, was Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course, at the end of a head-to-head with other games, which nevertheless had to give way in front of the work of art in the form of a shooter run and gun in 2D by Studio MDHR. The maxi-DLC is a new dose of gameplay as challenging and fun as the best levels of the main game, with an added dose of impressive bosses and spectacular handcrafted "vintage" animations. Although it is only an expansion, therefore, The Delicious Last Course has definitely conquered the scene in this June 2022, albeit quite crowded.

Just one percentage point away from the first, in second position we find here Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, another maxi-expansion, to confirm that this was the month of large DLCs, able to rival full games.

Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, a fight scene On the other hand, as it was for Iceborne, this addition by Capcom also has the flavor of the total revival for Monster Hunter Rise, with a large amount of new content, changes and further events that add to an already very rich base for the game on Nintendo Switch and PC. Third place for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge, which evidently also liked the readers a lot, but it's also interesting to see the challenge unleashed outside the podium, with The Quarry and Mario Strikers: Battle League Football contending for fourth place, finally narrowly conquered by supermassive horror.
